Higher education associations that represent a cohort of agricultural and life sciences institutions are eligible for Full Membership in the Confederation.  Such a higher education association is defined as an association of universities within a country or an association that encompasses a wider geographic region.

To be eligible for Full Membership the higher education association must have no less than five distinct higher education institutional members in good standing. Membership applications from such associations will be considered at a scheduled meeting of the General Assembly of GCHERA.

In those instances that there is no appropriate higher education association to which a single higher education institution may belong, that institution is eligible for membership of the Confederation as an Associate Member without voting rights.  Such membership applications shall be considered for approval by the General Assembly on an individual case by case basis.

If you wish to apply for membership please contact the GCHERA Secretariat.
